The preferred formula for remote users on this forum seems to be having a pbx on each site. Obviously, that's too many moving parts in terms of extra hardware and nerd oriented software to be an ideal situation. What I wish the industry would produce is a super ATA with some PBX features, perhaps embedding a streamlined version of asterisk. 1. Multiple voip trunks and configurable routes. I want to be able to have the device act as an extension of my PBX, but also to receive DID calls and place outbound calls directly with the SIP trunking provider. The extra legs and latency having the PBX in the middle of a call unnecessarily results in bad quality. Consider that a call may be going half way around the world and back just to dial out to someone next door. 2. Voicemail redirect. I want the DID call to be redirected to my PBX after so many rings. An embedded system which can record the message and then email it would be useful too. 3. VPN client. 4. Ideally: Extensions. An ATA could be the gateway for other sip phones on the LAN. If hackers could do for a PAP2T what DD-WRT does for a Linksys WRT54G series router, we'd really have something. Now that would be a worthy direction for PIAF. Because frankly while to most of us on this forum might appreciate having an PC at home dedicated to Asterisk to tinker with, we're in the minority.
